Keep your class in conversation with others across the country or across the sea by writing letters to pen pals. The activity calls for students to be pan pals with pupils in Africa; however, the listed steps could be used for any location. Class members research the area where their pen pals live, learn how to write friendly letters, and compose letters to another student.
- Include themes for four different letters that pupils can write
- A sample letter is provided for student reference
- Since the activity does not go into great depth, you will need to come up with your own instruction on how to write a friendly letter
